On Wednesday, June 21st, the Girls Ministries groups visited C.R. Bucks. The children and adults were treated to ice cream cones. A group of adults and children walked the circumference of the deer pen.
We saw bucks, does and a fawn! Some of the children screamed with excitement when they saw the fawn and he quickly ran to the other side of the enclosure.
Everyone had a nice time and we look forward to going back again next year.
Currently there are no news entries to be displayed at this time. Please check back soon!
Read Zephaniah 1:1 through 3:20
Published: Jul 20, 2017
The six Ionic pillars that stand on the campus of the University of Missouri at Columbia are all that remain of the Academic Hall that burned down in 1892. Some at that time wanted to remove the columns, but instead they were preserved to serve as reminder of the university’s history. Today they tower over the campus as a symbol of a prestigious institution.
Flocks and herds will lie down there, creatures of every kind. The desert owl and the screech owl will roost on her columns (Zephaniah 2:14).
In the prophet’s image, the pillars of the devastated city of Nineveh were to become a roost for owls. The ruins would be the residence of desert wildlife and wandering flocks. They were to serve as reminders of God’s discipline on a once great city.
Sometimes God has to use discipline when we deviate from His will. But it is designed to encourage us to confess and reconnect with Him. It is also a reminder that, despite our failures, God is always ready to forgive and restore us.
Thought for Today: How have failures in your life encouraged you to seek forgiveness and restoration?
Quicklook: Zephaniah 2:13–15
What is Girls Ministries?
Girls Ministries is a ministry for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Girls Ministries provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders. Girls Ministries is dividing into three sections of clubs; Kids Clubs for nursery and preschool children, Girls Clubs for elementary school girls, and Teen Girls Ministries (TGM) for middle school and high school girls. Girl Ministries uses small beginnings to make a big impact on girls and their world.

WOUNDS THAT HEAL
I remember hearing stories in high school about self-mutilation and wondering how someone could do that to her own body. It made no sense. My immediate conclusion was that it had to be for attention. What else could drive a person to do such a thing? I also remember knowing that something like that would never be a problem for me. I was too strong to ever resort to hurting myself, or so I thought.
SELF-INJURING: A CRY FOR HELP
“…By his wounds we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5) “Sometimes I cut myself. Sometimes I burn myself.” She was a beautiful 16-year-old girl explaining her secret behaviors for when she felt overwhelmed with life and hurtful memories. I was a 23-year-old youth pastor trying to listen and help, feeling stunned by behavior I had heard of but never seen.
Keeping Girls Motivated
As a leader of teen girls you know this age group doesn’t fall into rigidly–structured programs like younger girls. Teen girls share their opinions of club format. So how do you react? Don’t take it personally; consider it their investment in the club. However, if their comments have you wondering how to keep up attendance, try these five suggestions.
